Shopping for Woodworkers


This table of mostly-local vendors of wood, tools, and services may be of interest to you.  Many of the businesses and services listed have been used by OWA members and are known to provide quality service, but some have been included only because we found them on other lists.  If you have had a particularly good or particularly bad experience with any vendor, let us know.  We can add suppliers you think members should know about.  If a listing needs to be updated -- e.g. change of address -- please let us know by writing something in the comments or tell George at the next meeting. You can also email updates to: ottawa.woodworkers.assoc@gmail.com.

The list leaves out two common sources because it is presumed everyone knows about them.  The first is Lee Valley Tools.  Lee Valley has an international reputation as a go-to vendor for first-class woodworking tools and supplies at fair prices.  If you are unfamiliar with Lee Valley Tools, we invite you visit their website or their physical store at the Pinecrest exit of the Queenway.  The second omission are the big-box chain stores like Home Depot and Réno Dépôt, again, because everyone knows about them.
